There were two types of clergy in the medieval Catholic Church. One was called regular clergy, and consisted of those clergy who served in monasteries and monastic offices. These included abbots and monks. The other was called secular clergy, and these included popes, bishops, priests, and deacons. They were called secular because they served people of the secular world. For legal purposes, such as determining who was entitled to benefit of clergy in the courts, in some countries anyone who was able to read was considered clergy, and this even included students. The application of the term in this manner was a formality and had nothing to do with whether the person was actually a member clergy.

The stock answer on this one was that clergy were the people who could read and write, and very few other members of medieval society could. I think there is clear evidence that this answer is not entirely true. There is a link below to a related question whose answer goes into more detail on this.

In medieval times, few other than the clergy would have been able to read the Bible, because even kings and nobles were often illiterate. Moreover, the Bible was available in Greek and Latin, but not in any of the vernacular languages. On the basis that knowledge is power, the Bible was the source of power for the clergy. Being able to quote just the right passage enabled the clergy to silence their critics and even bring secular rulers to heel. Correct interpretation of the Bible enabled lesser clergy to win favour and progress up the hierarchy of the Church. Public demonstration of a life of piety and dedication of time to the Bible earned the respect of those who could not read the Bible or who did not have the time or inclination to do so.
